Half-Nekkid Thursday - Soul Edition

In honor of the Marc Broussard concert last Thursday, I decided to incorporate his lyrics into my post today. He is truly a man of soul. And, because I am always soul-searching, I thought it a perfect combination.

The Beauty of Who You Are

There's a soft sweet space on the back of your neck
Smells like rain
There's a way you look at me baby
Heals my pain
I've studied every inch of your body
Baby what's on your mind
The touch of your skin just pulls me in
Every single time

There's a silent conversation
Filled with hidden revelations in your eyes

Baby I'm so into you
Every whisper from your soul to my heart
Baby I know its true
You're a sweet little mystery sent to me from the stars
And that's the beauty of who you are

There's a faith you're savin' for a rainy day
I could use right now
There's a way you move my soul to sing
Only you know how
You are a sensual salvation
You're the holiest temptation
Baby I'm never, never, never gonna be the same

Baby I'm so into you
Every whisper from your soul to my heart
Baby I know its true
You're a sweet little mystery sent to me from the stars
And that's the beauty of who you are

I can't explain it or begin to conceive
All I know is that you make me believe

I figured since the song was entitled "The Beauty of Who You Are", I would post a picture with no make-up, no posing, just me....the way I am.

Two Thoughts For the Day:

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.

Happy HNT Everyone!!

Much Love, As Always....

Just Things......

Well, I had a pretty good weekend for a change.
Thursday night, I drove to Nashville to catch the Marc Broussard show.
He is my absolute favorite artist right now. He's not very well known, which is one of the things I love about him. I got off work, went home to change, jumped in my car and drove to Nashville all by my lonesome. I really do have balls when I need them!!! I also got the pleasure of meeting my first fellow blogger (and HNT'er) in person. Since I was in his neck of the woods, I decided "What the hell??". It was great meeting him and I just wanted to give him a shout-out for helping me get to the show.

I took the day off on Friday and was just absolutely lazy.

As you know, my sister, bro-in-law and my nieces are in town from New York. We had a belated 1st birthday party for Bella. And it was a really nice day. Is she not just the most precious thing??? (Besides Melly, of course!!)

On the down side, my air conditioning is out again, my office manager screwed me out of 10 hours of overtime on my check, and I still don't have a desk......

But, other than hasn't been too bad lately. At least I haven't had any real disasters occur. Especially, in light of the previous Friday the 13th!!! LMAO

Half-Nekkid Thursday - 07.12.07

So...this is really my "I don't give a shit anymore" HNT post. I really don't want to seem so hateful, but I've been through so much in the last two years, that sometimes I just get in these moods. My heart is broken, my spirit has been destroyed, my faith has been shaken, and my hope has been diminished. Of course, I know I'll get through it!! I always do.
It's just that sometimes I don't feel like posting something full of spirit and strong will. I have my days, just like everybody else. The difference with me, is that I feel guilty for putting my depressed mood above the needs of others. But, today is my day damn it!!
I seem to have evolved back into the mode I was in when I first started this blog, which means a milion things to me right now. I've always had my spurts of bad luck, but this is getting absolutely ridiculous.'s my picture!

Actually, it's one of my favorites to date.....go figure!!

Happy HNT Everyone. May Each of You Have a Blessed Day!!!

Much Love, As Always - Jin-fedup-Sane

Half-Nekkid Thursday - 4th of July Edition

Sorry I haven't posted in awhile. My firm has been in the middle of relocating offices, and while packing up my desk last Friday, I sliced my arm open. According to the ER doc, I was a tenth of a millimeter away from an artery. Needless to say, it was nasty.....and it hurt like hell. It only took three stitches, but now, apparently, I've had an allergic reaction to the medicated cream they gave me, so now I have an ugly rash right over top of the stitches. It never fails!!!

I'm not as isolated at my new desk as I was at the old place, so my "online" time has been drastically reduced.

I'm still waiting to get my camera fixedback, but was able to snap a shot yesterday. Sorry it's not much....but at least it's something.

I hope you all had a great 4th of July holiday!!

HHNT Everyone.

Much Love, As Always......
